  1. Another set of SERVICE THIEVES led by a brainless FULANI HERDSMAN. The world is laughing at you. The Greatest Black Nation in shambles. Shame on you. This fake president should see the video of soldiers celebrating the removal of the notorious former Chief of Army staff Buratai. Second celebration comes up when this useless lifeless Fulani herdsman goes down.

    1. Service thieves. Can you prove it? Why are we always in a hurry to pull people down? A platform to make comments is not a platform for gutter talks. Only the end will tell if they succeeded or failed.
